Message in a Bottle & More

It’s a rainy day here in Georgia so I thought it would be a great day to share some wonderful cards with you – so why not relax and enjoy? This first card uses the Message in a Bottle stamp set (143707) which is part of the Last Chance List – this group of products will no longer be available after May 31st. So if there is something that you have on your wish list you’ll want to check it HERE.

And how about this card made with the retiring Grown with Love stamp set (143684/144433).

And this one done with our Host Set, Background Bits (144026/144029)

Looking for a great guy set? Here is a card made with one of my favorite sets, Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178) and the Work of Art stamp set (134111/134114).

I’ll be sad to see this Butterfly Thinlits Die (137360) go as you can see it makes a lovely card all by its self.

and how about this card made with the Wild About Flower stamp set (138728) – don’t you love the soft clouds sponged in the background?

A fun card perfect for all ages, the Birthday Delivery stamp set (143660), Framelits and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (144118)

And the In This World stamp set (141496/142652) done with the spotlight technique.

The Lots of Love stamp set (143799) was used to create this soft and lovely card.

And here are a couple of fun cards using our retiring Designer Series Paper, Foil Frenzy (144125). This first one uses the Coffee Cafe stamp set (143677) and its coordinating Coffee Cups Thinlits Dies (143745)

And here is a fun set, You’ve Got Style (143895/143898) filled with quirky images and sentiments too.

And finally a card that uses our Beautiful You stamp set (143004/143637) and our retiring Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185).

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some cards using the sneak peek bundle from the NEW 2018 Annual Catalog.

Succulent Post It Note Holders

I found these cute little post it note holders a while back in the dollar spot at Target and couldn’t resist whipping up some holders using the Succulent Framelits Dies.

So what do you think? These little sticky pads measure 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and I started my project by using the colors in them to kick off my creativity.

While both pads measure the same the colors were different so I made them a bit differently too.

I chose to go with two succulents for this one.

And a bold Sahara Sand succulent on the other

Check out this quick video to see how I made the Succulent Easel Post it Holder

More On Stage, Beautiful You & a Sneak Peek!

I’ll be sharing a few more photos of my On Stage experience with you today along with a Sneak Peek video! I’ve never done a video before sharing items from the Product Purchase Premiere, but thought you might enjoy a peek at the experience of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

A Stampin’ Up! Event always includes wonderful displays of projects created by many talented Demonstrators.

New product boards so we can not only see but touch and feel too.

Along with presentations of new products and more

And of course one can’t forget Prize Patrol!!! It’s always fun to win!

And then there are the All Attendee Give-A-Ways too!!!! And that’s in addition to what comes in our Event bags (you can seethe bag and the goodies it contained inside in my video) and a copy of the NEW 2017 Annual Catalog. Whew! can you say fun?!

Stampin’ Up! makes these events so much fun and of course gathering with your stamping family is part of the fun too. (I’m met such wonderful stampers over the years from all over.)

As we said goodbye to On Stage Savannah we took a final Team picture at a fun booth they set up.

And enjoyed a lovely dinner together at the Charter House on River Street later that night after the event.

I got to order a special treat – with the She-Crab Soup! Yumm!

On to the Beautiful You Swaps – I really love this set and am very happy that it’s not on the Retirement List. (Happy dance LOL). I created a swap that I took with me using the 2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (which is on the list). This allowed me to make multiple cards with the same layout but play with the colors, which was a lot of fun.

It’s spring so I teamed up the Tip Top Taupe pattern with Blushing Bride and Soft Sky. Here are the cards by themselves so you can see them a bit better.

I really love the way these turned out with the coordinating Enamel Shapes a pop of color. I’ve included a complete supply list below (You’ll have to scroll way down to the end), but here are the measurements for you if you’d like to make one too!

Soft Sky Card Stock Base: Cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; score at 4 1/4″

Tip Top Taupe In Color Designer Series Paper: Cut 3 3/4″ x 5″

Soft Sky Card stock: Cut 3″ x 4 1/4″

Whisper White Card stock: Cut 2 3/4″ x 4″

 

Want to see some more cards using this set that I received in swaps?

2017 Annual Catalog On Stage Product Purchase Premiere Goodies Video

Still with me? How about a sneak peek of the products that I just received? I LOVE the special perk we have for being a demonstrator – ordering early!!! The truck pulled up and It was with a squeal of delight that I accepted my box from the man in brown yesterday afternoon – It’s always like  Christmas when it’s Preorder time! LOL

Check out this little video I made for you so you can take a peek too!

So what do you think? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside!

As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first?

Beautiful You Birthdays

#imbringingbirthdaysback this month with Beautiful You.

I have really been enjoying this set and so I wanted to use it to create this month’s birthday cards that I was sending out. (They will be a couple of days late going out, but I’m hoping that those who receive these cards will think it was worth the wait. LOL!)

I’ve used one of our 2015 In Colors, Delightful Dijon to create this card and teamed it up with Basic Gray for a rich and bold look.

Did you know that this color will be retiring soon? Yep, it’s that time of you – our retirement list will be announced on April 10th!!! Yikes – already! AND our 2015 In Color Collection will be on it!

So you’ll want to be sure to complete your collection of supplies before April 10th, since the In Colors are typically the first things to go and they go quickly! Don’t get caught without your favorite colors, reinkers and accessories. Order yours before April 10th so you’re not disappointed.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with 200 cards!

Want to be one of those who receive a hand stamped birthday card from me? It’s simple just send an email to me at StampwithJini@gmail.com and give me the following information.

Name

Address

Date of birth

(I just need the month and day since we’re all 29. LOL! But you can include the year if you want to. US only)

Oh, and if you’ve already celebrated your birthday this year, no worries I’ll be sending a full 12 months of cards out! So that’s it – email me your birthday and then just sit back and wait for your card to arrive in the mail!

Everyday Hero & tons more!

Recently I was able to get together with my Kathleen and her team for some stamping fun and so I thought I’d share some of the project that we made together along with some of the swaps we did.

The first card I’m sharing with you is a swap from Maria using the Everyday Hero stamp set (143080). Maria used our Watercolor Pencils to color this adorable super hero and the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color win the WOW so it sparkles.

More swapping fun included cards from Lorraine and Susan using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle of products (144728).

If you haven’t already gotten this bundle it’s a great one! Lots of fantastic ideas are out there – the options are endless!

And of course who doesn’t love the Beautiful You stamp set 143004/143637) that Teresa used for her card.

And Linda who is new to the team used the Layering Love stamp set (141962/141965) along with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (141654) to create this soft lovely card.

She used the Decorative Label Punch (120907) for the end of the banner in a different way – She slipped the card stock into the punch and through the hole so that she only cut one end of the card stock – cool, right?

I just love the versatility of punches!

And finally some of our Make n Takes that I stamped. First this cute little 3d boat made using the Window Box Thinlits Die (142762). Wouldn’t these be great done in red, white and blue for Memorial Day?

And a card using using the Window Shopping Bundle (144742/144743) which includes the same Thinlits, but using it in a different way.

And I love this Suite of products – the Urban District found on page 47 of the Occasions Catalog contains some wonderful coordinating products that include two stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and embellishments! Wow – great for the guys in our lives and so many other uses too.

And finally a Sale-a-bration project using the So Very Much stamp set (143340/143343) that you can earn for free until March 31st.

I loved this emboss resist technique using the 2016 In Colors so much that I’m sending this card out this month to say thank you when you place an order!

Whew! what did I tell you lots of sharing and inspiring going on.  Stamping with my fellow demonstrators is one of the things I enjoy most – it’s a time to gather, learn and inspire each other. And I’ve made some wonderful friendships in my stamping journey because I’m part of the community of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

Get your 2015 In Colors Before they’re Gone!

Our retiring In Colors are always one of the first things to disappear when the retirement list is announced in April – so now is a great time to complete your collection so you don’t miss out.
